Hi there! First of all I would like to congratulate the Norwegian people with their National Day today! Happy 17. th of May! We will go for a parade in the streets with our national costumes, waving the flags and shout out hurrays. And the children get to eat as much ice cream as they can manage:)

I have made a birthday card for you today, with the beautiful Sofiero papers.

Sofiero-P1

The letters and numbers are cut out with a word die from Sizzix.

The image is from Magnolia and I have coloured it with Distress Inks.  I have stamped the image and text with Memento-Rich Cocoa. I have melted some FranTage around the image and added Liquid Pearls. On the flowers I have added Crackle Accent. The text is from Stempelglede.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the dies used are DooHickeys from Magnolia. I have inked all the edges with Distress Ink pad – Walnut Stain. And they are sewed on my sewing machine.

Hi there Maja fans! I hope you have had a wonderful May so far! Here the weather is so nice, it has been sunny and warm. So lovely! As you might know, I live in the western part of Norway where it is raining all the time, so a bit sun is much needed:) Ok, I will tell you a bit about my card. I made it for my cousin’s baby, by the beautiful name Bjørk.

Sofiero-K

I have used papers fom the new Sofiero collection, and also added two postmarks with images from the Vintage Baby collection. I have used a postmark stamp on them from Stempelglede with white embossing powder.

The image is from Magnolia, and the text is from Stempelglede. The flowers are from WOC and Kort og Godt.

Hi there! Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Here comes a card I have made both for Maja Design and Magnolia. I have will also show you how I made the moon and the pop-up effect.

Vintage-Spring-Basics-P

Vintage-Baby-P

For this project I have used the beautiful Vintage Spring Basics collection and the Vintage Baby collection. Now to the little step by step:

1

I started with making the moon. First I used my compasses. I made a circle with a diameter of 16 cm. Then I drew the rest of it by hand like this. I used hard cardboard for this.

2

Then I painted the edges of the moon with white Gesso.

3

Then I drew the moon on some Maja Design pattern papers (two times, for the front and the back).

4

Then I inked the edges with Distress Ink pad, Walnut Stain.

5

Place the baby on the moon.

6

Fold a paper strip like a rectangle and fasten it like this. Make two so that the moon will have a good grip inside the card. (You can see this better on the finished card)

7

To decorate the card, I have cut out some shapes from Maja papers: heart background, celebration, star tag, (flag and) cloud, castle. The dies are Magnolia DooHickeys.

I will now show you some details of the finished card, and how the pop-up looks like.

Hi! Here comes a new card where I have used the sweetest collection called Vintage Baby. I will give you the list of paper used at the end of this post. If you are wondering, the paper behind the card is from the Vintage Summer Basics collection and is called 1905

Vintage-Baby-P

I have also cut out two butterflies from a paper from the Vintage Spring Collection called 6th of May.

This is a baptism card for a girl, so I have used papers in pink tones. I have also made two postmark stamps with Maja papers and a Magnolia die. The main image is a stamp from Stempelglede.

IMG_7183

The pennants are made with a die from Magnolia, and I have fasten the letters on to them. I have used a beige Maja paper here.

IMG_7186

The teddybears are from the bottom of a Maja paper. I have used gold embossing on the flag. The text is made with a stamp from Stempelglede.

Hi there! How are you? Have you seen the new edition of the Sofiero papers? They even comes with monocromes papers. For my card I have used this gorgeous collection.

Sofiero-K

I have coloured up Tilda (Magnolia) here with some yellow/greenish colours. As I wanted the paper bag to have a fresh, springlike touch. The Sofiero papers are perfect for any romantic Spring card.

IMG_7113

The clipboard frame around the image is from Wycinanka, called Apple bloss. I have put it up on 3D foam.

IMG_7073

For the text I have used gold embossing, and it is from Stempelglede “Dear Confirmand”. I have fastened it to a paperstraw.

Here is a closer look.

On the left side I have put some lovely Ephemera cards, which is cut out.
